A Humble Beginning

From humble beginnings in 1963, McElroy Metal has grown into a national company with 14 manufacturing facilities, 28 Service Centers, and 44 Metal Mart locations across the United States. 

We believe that business morals and ethics still have a place in the work environment. We continue to conduct business under the golden rule: Customers deserve to be treated in the same way we like to be treated by our suppliers. Some may say that makes us old-fashioned. We think they are right!
